Thursday, July 2, 1936

plesant all day
Raining at 10-30 this evening
Done up the washing while Clara took  Mother to Ithaca
Shot at^ woodchucks this P.M.
Harry hoed the potatoes & fixed a little run for Aunty's chickens and put chickens wire in garden to keep woodchucks from beans and they bothered all afternoon-
Harry left for home 11-30 A.M.
Iliff and Mildred came to pay Aunty for wheat.
*Mother bad all day.

^This is double underlined in the diary entry. Must be Irene was trying to scare the woodchucks away, rather than kill them.

*This line is written vertically up the left hand side of the diary entry.

Thanks for visiting this flashback to 1936. I'm sure Irene would be pleased! We'd love to hear from you.
